Porcupine pendants for the people! These pendants are one piece I adore creating just as much as I love wearing it. Each porcupine quill is natural and ethically harvested; the quills fall right off the porcupines at local farms and are collected, cleaned, and turned into pendants. The gradients vary drastically from quill to quill; some are solid black, others have 5 stripes of black, white, and occasionally shades of brown scattered throughout. The quills are very lightweight and airy, making them extremely easy to wear. Be ready for a conversation starter, most folks will truly not believe these beauties come from real porcupines!
Excited to share a new summer design and more shots from our fun shoot with You've Been Noted! I love when designs and colors scream summer (my favorite season!) and the new Pavo Necklace, available in turquoise and bright multi-color, is the epitome of summer dreams. The beads and V design create a statement silhouette, but the pendant is extremely lightweight as well. Lightweight is key for me in the summer, and this is the ultimate bright pendant for those long days. Once the days finally cool down this Fall, this piece will be ideal for layering, and she'll surely remind you of your summer adventures.
America + Atlanta + necklaces + vintage -- that sums up our most recent photo shoot extremely well. I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon last week with a whole slew of talented local creatives for a very fun + unexpectedly patriotic photo shoot. Of course, the giant flag has made me even more excited to celebrate July 4th this weekend -- beer, beach, patriotism (what else could you ask for in a holiday?). This dual-citizen is ready for her adopted favorite holiday.
With the rise of social media the last few years, there are parts of being so connected that I love and parts I wish I could easily shut off. I guess that's what the 'off' button is for -- I should use that more often. Anyways, one of my favorite parts of my business (and one of my saving graces as I work alone most of the time) is being able to connect in a small way to so many beautiful customers and bloggers around the world. Jackie of Something About That in Canada always brightens my day when she includes her C&L pieces in her blog posts, and I just adore her latest look where she layered two of our purple pieces, Rima and Eliza, in this effortless ensemble. She has C&L layering nailed, and we love her for it!
Our neutral fringe necklaces have risen in popularity ever since they were introduced last year in our Greece Collection. In fact, my next item on the to-do list is to crank out 13 Crete Necklaces in order to finalize an order with an exciting new retailer, but first! I must share these beautiful photos of Stephanie of Her New Tribe taken by Claudia Bost, both of whom I've had the pleasure of working with recently on our latest two lookbooks. They are both extremely talented ATL-ians with vision for days, and it has been a beautiful experience getting a glimpse into how they work and create. I just love how Stephanie layered her Crete necklace over a graphic tee, and can we pause for a second and admire that Very Fine South bag as well? Gorgeous!
Absolutely smitten with these photos Kelsey Lee styled with our Eliza necklace. We've already shared a few of our favorite photos of this Atlanta beauty in this post, but my goodness are these shots stunning in her latest blog post. Check out her newly designed site for more gorgeous styling and inspiration.
The creative community in Atlanta is very connected, especially when you become a part of co-ops or local stores. With all the connections and relationships you make in these environments, it is very humbling for me when other creatives choose to wear our jewels. Allison has been a sweet supporter for ages now, and we are so grateful for her support and are head-over-heels for these shots of her in C&L from her recent shoot with So Worth Loving.
